  • Ever wet yourself over a welder?......

    This may have been around already but I just stumbled upon a really nice pipeliner conversion on youtube. Just about had to go have a moment by myself!

    Of course now the real problem is trying to resist buying another redface and "borrowing" my neighbour's little diesel tractor!

    Wetting yourself over an electric welder is probably not a good idea! What with high open circuit voltages and wet pants, you could end up with quite a tingle someplace where you'd rather not have it!

        Sure have, if was the 350p and the DyNASTY 200 that wet my pants for years. Expensive, but some of the best money I ever spent! I dont regret the purchase at all.

        Still wet thinking about being water cooled, but thats beyond my needs.. HaHa

        That machine looks awesome!!!

            Coalsmoke,

            Here's a part from one of my previous posts which may have some bearing on this topic.

            Thankfully my pants were dry but not for long........................

            Burnt hands

            Don't do this at home (or in your shop)

            Hardrock40,
            I will share my stupidity for all to laugh at and perhaps learn from.
            Most of my work is tig. Stainless and alum with some carbon steel.
            Last summer I was doing about 95 pieces of 065" wall stainless.
            Got lazy and decided to rest the tig torch on my lap while swapping in new parts.
            Worked for a while then when I thought I was in a rhythm and getting a good production rate, I got sloppy.
            Left the tig torch in my lap as before and clamped the next piece in the fixture but bumped the foot pedal by mistake.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
            And of course the tungsten was in the most painful location.................
            Luckily this was just a jolt but I learned very quickly - please be careful with any voltage.

              I have HF'd myelf more times than I can count... in many creative ways.....

              but thankfully not that way... usually related to my personal brainfade and a hot humid day in some cramped space

              But Yeah.... all to easy to get zapped.....

                OUCH!!!! That's one of those free perks that you won't read in the miller sales flyer when advertising their excellent HF starts! Being on the wet British Columbia coast, sometimes we'd have to resort to changing rods with our armpits since they were the only parts still dry.

                    I'm creeping up on my 60th birthday Wetting myself is something I have not yet begun anew. I'm a little uncomfortable with the subject. In a more direct answer to your question; I came close with the Dynasty 280DX, but from history, I once used, tried for years to talk its owner out of, then was given a 194? Westinghouse engine welder. I allowed my wife to bully me into getting rid of it. I want another.

                    Mine had no nameplate. I guessed it to be 600 amps. Last summer I found its twin. It was 325 amps. Equipped with a Chrysler industrial 25" 236 flat head, there was no risk of overloading the engine. The smoothest stick welder I have used, I want another.

                      First one was a P&H MIG welder (5052 Aluminum with 5356 wire) from the mid 1970's through the early 1980's, then 5 years ago it was a Dynasty 350DX (I like Syncrowaves but the Dynasty 350DX beat them all).
